What Exactly is a Premium Cigar? + Beer, Glorious Beer, and an Interview with Orlando Mendez

The title and direction of this show was taken from listener feedback asking, “Can you define the difference between a premium cigar vs a non-premium cigar?” We took a stab at that one while smoking the Aganorsa Rare Leaf Reserve Maduro, very much a premium cigar. We then paired that cigar with 4 dark beers and interviewed the up and coming, cigar-loving country singer, Orlando Mendez aka The Cuban Cowboy.
